It took a while for the unspoken truth to be finally spoken, but sooner or later, it always is. Via The Hill:
Paul Ryan argued Monday that a vote for a third-party candidate would likely help President Obama win reelection.
Ryan was asked why voters should not vote for Ron Paul. The Republican vice presidential candidate responded that a vote for Paul, who ran for the 2012 GOP nomination, would effectively split the vote in a way that helps Obama.
"Do you want Barack Obama to be reelected? Then don't vote for Ron Paul," Ryan said during a campaign speech in Lima, Ohio, on Monday.
Ryan went on to say that Paul was a good friend.
"Actually, Ron's a friend of mine. I know Ron very well. I like Ron quite a bit. There are many things that Ron has championed that I'm a big believer in, especially liberty and sound money."
Although Paul is no longer campaigning for president, he has not endorsed Mitt Romney's campaign.
What if one wants Ron Paul to be elected? Can one vote for Ron Paul then?
